River Horse has added another game to their Dark Crystal series with pre-orders now available for The Dark Crystal: Adventure Game. It looks like a great way to delve into this weird and wonderful Fantasy world with friends.

The Dark Crystal Adventure Game - River Horse

The Dark Crystal: Adventure Game // River Horse

Included within its pages you'll find...

  • Easy to learn rules, perfect for the first-time player
  • Massive 200-page adventure for you to explore with your friends
  • Unique transparent overlay pages with hidden information
  • Fold-out scenes for epic locations from Dark Crystal lore
  • Handy double-sided reference bookmark and a map of Thra
  • Illustrations by Brian Froud, Chris Cæsar, and Iris Compiet

...and all of this is included within a high-quality cloth-bound hardback book. We've seen River Horse do great stuff with Labyrinth: The Adventure Game so I can imagine this is only going to be better!

I really like that these books bring together elements of Choose Your Own Adventure whilst also building in roleplaying game mechanics. It's a nice halfway house that might be worth diving into if you're a big fan of The Dark Crystal but have not tried games like these before.

I like that the folks at River Horse have also taken the time to make this book look like an artefact from the world of The Dark Crystal. It feels like something that the characters might flick through themselves. I appreciate it! I imagine a lot of Dark Crystal fans would feel the same too.

Are you going to be pre-ordering this before its release at the start of 2022?
